Queen Elizabeth II is considering the option of calling Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in a move to ensure that the royal family feud comes to an end after senior members of the royal family trashed the racist allegation which was hipped on them during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Daily Mail report says that the Queen, 94, made sure Prince Harry and his wife Meghan were told about her statement to their Oprah Winfrey interview before it was released Tuesday.
The source also said that Queen Elizabeth is now expected to speak to them on the phone in the coming days to extend an olive branch.
In a move to get the situation under control, the Queen has ordered a “three-line whip” — an official order of the highest level to stop the palace employees from talking about the matter publicly, and may even take more steps to ensure things remain in shape.
The monarch also personally insisted on the compassionate tone of her statement on Tuesday, with its gentle ‘recollections may vary’ replacing a firm rebuttal of contested allegations that others had pushed for, sources told the outlet.
“It is difficult to underestimate how shell-shocked everyone is by what has happened. People are literally reeling from what has happened and some staff would dearly love to publicly rebut some of what has been said about them.
“But the Queen has taken a very measured, sensible approach. She is leading by example. This is a matter for her and the family to deal with,” a source told the Mail.
